Dear friends of the Charlotte Latin Mass Community (CLMC),

Laudetur Iesus Christus!  Blessed Feast of All Saints!

Today Nov 1. begins the important all Souls Novena to the Poor Souls in Purgatory (Nov 1-8)-see below.

Secondly, please review the Latin Mass schedule for Tuesday Nov 1 and Wednesday Nov 2nd. We also proudly note, that the black cope for Requiem Masses that many of you generously donated for will be used by Father at St. Ann’s All Souls Mass (thank you again!).

Lastly, we also draw your attention to the special orchestral Mass scheduled Wednesday at St Thomas Aquinas parish.

 

All Saints Day (Tues. Nov 1):

  • St. Ann, 7am Latin Mass (Low) **Holy Day of Obligation**

All Souls Day (Wed. Nov 2):

  • St. Ann, 6pm Latin Mass (High)
  • St. Thomas Aquinas, 7pm Latin (Solemn High Orchestral Mass with the Carolina Catholic Chorale)
  • St. Michael the Archangel, Gastonia, 6:00pm (High) (this is a time change from 7pm previously advertised).

 

TWO Plenary Indulgences available for All Souls:  

All Souls Indulgences
Grant #29.1.1
For the Souls in Purgatory – Plenary Indulgence
A plenary indulgence, applicable only to the souls in purgatory, is granted each and every day from Nov. 1 to Nov. 8, who devoutly visit a cemetery and there pray, if only mentally, for the departed.

Grant #29.1.2
All Souls’ Day – Plenary Indulgence
A plenary indulgence is granted the faithful who, on All Souls’ Day (or according to the judgment of the bishop, on the Sunday preceding or following it, or on the solemnity of All Saints), devoutly visits a church or an oratory and recites an Our Father and the Apostles Creed.

 

Please keep in mind that an indulgence is granted to the faithful who devoutly visit a cemetery and pray for the dead (even if the prayer is only mental) during the first 8 days of November. A plenary indulgence, applicable only to the Souls in Purgatory, is also granted to the faithful, who piously visit a church or a public oratory on All Souls Day. In visiting the church or oratory, it is required that one Our Father and the Creed be recited.

 

Both of these indulgences are granted under the normal conditions, i.e., one must be baptized and in the state of grace, be free from an attachment to sin, go to confession within 20 days, receive Holy Communion on the day you visit the cemetery or church, and offer prayers for the intentions of the Holy Father (a Creed and an Our Father will suffice).

Feast of Christ the King recap

Dear Friends of the Charlotte Latin Mass Community (CLMC),

Blessed Feast of Our Lord’s Kingship! On behalf of the CLMC, we wanted to thank everyone for their participation in our two Christ the King events Thursday and today.  Our special thanks to Frs. Reid, Barone and Christian; as well as the staff at St. Ann’s for helping to support this blessed festivities (and to the flag bearers today).

A record crowd of 340 people attended Mass and the Procession today and it was this weekend’s highest attended Mass. We also had visitors from as far two hours away – a remarkable sign of faith of how many and how far people will come to honor Christ’s Kingship.

Speaking of Christ’s Kingship, we wanted to thank everyone who helped organize and supported Father Christian’s excellent talk on the Social Kingship of Christ this past Thursday.  If you missed the talk we highly recommend you listen. You can view the talk and resources here:

Christ the King Eucharistic Procession: Oct 30th

Laudetur Iesus Christus!  We wanted to update you on St. Ann’s Christ the King Eucharistic Procession on Sunday October 30th after 12:30pm Latin Mass. In order to proclaim Christ as King – in both Heaven and in Charlotte – we invite you to process with Christ the King in the Most Holy Blessed Sacrament. Also, we invite you to honor your favorite saintly king, queen, or statesman who acknowledged Christ’s Kingship by processing with an image of them. Here’s how:

 

  • Bring a statue, portrait or image, etc. of your favorite saintly kings, etc. You can also order one from Charlotte-based Catholic Company
  • All saintly royalty and statesman are invited – servant of God, venerable, beatified, or canonized. Click here to see the list of Saints: https://charlottelatinmass.files.wordpress.com/2016/10/list-of-royal-saints.pdf
  • Catholic flags & homemade banners are welcome – the more the merrier!
  • We will invoke their aid on our nation and beg God to send us holy leaders

 

Plenary Indulgence is granted to all who recite the Act of Consecration of the Human Race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus on the Feast of Christ the King, which we will do.

After Mass we will process around the block and will conclude with reciting the consecration (2pm-2:30ish). God willing, this will be a festive day and a great opportunity to invite family and friends that don’t attend St. Ann’s or the Latin Mass.

 

Don’t forget!

Have you RSVP’d  for Father Christian’s talk on October 27th regarding Christ the King & Blessed Karl of Austria?  You will learn why this feast is important and why we are processing. The class with Fr. Jason Christian is Thurs Oct 27th at 7pm (Mass at 6pm) and a complimentary dinner meal. To RSVP please click here:

Mid October update

Laudetur Iesus Christus!  We have a couple brief reminders to bring up that are relevant to this coming week.

 

  1. New expanded daily Latin Mass schedule starting today at St. Ann:  How fitting that tomorrow, Monday October 17th, the Feast of St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, St. Ann Catholic Church will be expanding their daily Latin Mass schedule to include Monday’s at 8:30 am and Friday’s at 7:00 am.  Note that these new Mass times may be cancelled or altered on days that overlap with national holidays.  Please check the St. Ann’s Bulletin for the most up to date information.

 

St. Margaret Mary Alacoque is the Saint who communicated to the world the First Friday’s devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus from a vision that she received directly with Jesus Christ.  Our Latin Mass community has a wonderful growing devotion to the Sacred Heart … and it may be so that the Sacred Heart is to be credited for the many graces we have received.

 

Mass Attendance is important … please join us if you are able.

 

  1. Liturgy & Fraternity, Wednesday Oct 19th: This coming Wednesday, after the 6:00 pm Latin Mass at St. Ann, all men are welcome to join us for our Monthly Liturgy & Fraternity evening of fellowship.  A group of men meet around 7:00 pm every third Wednesday at Sir Edmond Halley’s which is a quaint restaurant a couple blocks away from St. Ann’s [located at: 4151 Park Road, Charlotte, NC 28209, (704) 525-7775].  Note that this Wednesday’s meeting does coincide with the third and final Presidential debate which starts about 9:00 pm… but we will still enjoy some good fellowship even if it is a little abbreviated.

All Saints & All Souls Schedule

Laudetur Iesus Christus! While we are focusing on honoring the Kingship of our Lord Jesus Christ later this month (with a talk & Eucharistic Procession), we also wanted to look ahead into November and share with you the All Saints & All Soul Latin Mass schedule (as we know it at press time).
